Fire Extinguishing with Automatic Monitors

Müller-Guttenbrunn Group consists of a number of recycling companies in Austria, Hungary, Romania, Czech Republic, and a trading company in Switzerland. MGG Metran at the town of Amstetten in Austria is the company within the Müller-Guttenbrunn Group which processes non-ferrous shredder residues, mixed metals and metal-containing slags into sorted fractions for smelters. The delivered materials are temporarily stored in the plant's incoming waste storage hall for further processing.

The newly installed fire extinguishing system with automatic monitors with optimally protects the incoming waste storage hall around the clock. If the Early Fire Detection System detects a hot spot, the fire monitor is automatically directed into the affected sector and begins to deliver extinguishing agents. By early detection and cooling of the hot spot, further damage to systems and costly production downtime can be minimized. Likewise, the automatic monitors can be also be operated manually by the plant operator at any time.
